  1. I would stay away from the calcium supplements myself. I think I remember reading or hearing somewhere that arthopods don't need very much calcium, and if they get too much it will make their exoskeleton brittle, for a hisser a brittle exo could be fatal if they fall off the wall of their enclosure, I would think it would increase the chance of a rupture.

  2. The reason I said Tityus sp. is the extra spike on the telson.
  3. I can't help much, I'm not very familiar with the genus, but I'm 99% positive its a Tityus sp. no clue what species though, maybe someone else can help with a more specific ID.
  4. From what I have read, yes. Any acorn bearing tree. I have several types of oak tree in my back yard, red oak, white oak, post oak, water oak and sawtooth oak. I am using these for my domino roaches.
  5. Fish are very high in protein, I would avoid using goldfish though unless they are frozen while they are still alive. When they die they secrete something, I can't remember what, but it's harmful to snakes, not sure about roaches but better safe than sorry I guess.
  6. I would like to see pics of your Domino Roach setups if you don't mind sharing a pic or two.
  7. I'll be posting here, arachnoboards, and venomlist, I don't have the time to raise, or even try to raise all the slings, but I want as many of them to be raised to adulthood to see if this trait will breed true in the offspring, so I want to spread them out among widow keepers with experience raising widow slings. On a side note, I am looking for a mature male Latrodectus menavodi and Latrodectus geometricus if anyone reading this has one or both available for breeding loan, or just wants give one away to a good cause. Or I could trade WC L. mactans of any size you desire, gravid females also available. Chris
  8. Welcome. 42 species, wow, thats a nice collection, which 42 species?
  9. hi

    Welcome to the forum, not a bad selection you have there. Had any thoughts about your next species?
  10. How old is your discoid colony? Could possibly be one that was mixed in as a tiny nymph when you got your discoids, or a number of things really. Hissers are sneaky lil critters.
  11. I am planning to breed her with a male from the same source I got her from so hopefully I can produce more of these. The males should be maturing within the next month. Chris

  14. One of my female red widows (Latrodectus bishopi) has no pattern whatsoever on her abdomen, I don't have any pics of the normal ones, but you can google it. Here are some pics of the lady with the unique abdomen.
  15. The brands I have used are.. Soil Moist, cant remember who makes it though and Shultz Moisture Plus I used 2 containers of the Moisture Plus, then had to switch to the Moisture Plus and have used nearly 3 gallons of it with no problems at all. Chris
